Kingdom Truth - What is the Kingdom of Heaven in the Bible?
There is a saying "You get for what you pay for". For Kingdom personnel, the parallel is "You overcome by how you prepare yourself". If failure is the mother of success, then being prepared is essential to success. Those who prepare themselves by "rising early and sleeping late in the Lord" presently shall be the requirement of an overcomer in the future. If such is seen in history, how much more should this be in spiritual life. You will never be sorry if you are prepared! Since the equipping of Kingdom personnel comes from God's grace, we should not regard ourselves as the "granddad home guard"! We should be healthy and strong. We should be His faithful and special forces. We should never avoid hardship nor fear difficulties. We should regard the rise and fall of the Kingdom as our personal responsibility and be willing to lay down our lives in critical moments in order to accomplish the mission!
How then can the corrupt be transformed into the supernatural? Thank God, what is impossible for man is possible with God! In Him nothing is impossible because He is the great, the mighty and the awesome God! (Neh. 9:32) He has promised to give strength to the weary and to him who lacks might, He increases power. As long as we ask Him in faith and are confident that He who began a good work in us will perfect it (see Phi. 1:6), He can "renew our youth"! We "will mount up with wings like eagles...run and not get tired...walk and not become weary" (Pss. 103:5; Isa. 40:29, 31). Arise, Kingdom personnel! Let us go up to the mountain of the Lord and to the house of the God of Jacob, which is the governmental center of the Kingdom!
